Fantasy Football Week 7 Targets Leaders

Since targets have become a stat, fantasy junkies have fallen in love with it, including us! But just because your favorite WR gets thrown to 12 times each week, that does not guarantee anything! That is why we calculated their Catch % for you!

If Andy Reid was smart, he would bring back the McNabb to Westbrook screens that dominated the league for so long.  It would do wonders for Vick and McCoy's stats!

Jeremy Kerley has really stepped up his game since Holmes went down with a season ending injury.  Even with the horrible start to the season for the Lions offense, Calvin Johnson still leads all top targets receivers in plays 20 yards or longer.  Why can't he take another one to the endzone!?

With Fred Davis out for the season and Chris Cooley having ZERO chemistry with rookie QB RG3, you can expect 1 of 2 things.   1.) More Santana Moss 2.) More RG3 scrambles.
